"Across the Rio Grand-eo"
The pervious night had the monster Dew, but this show is another example of outstanding playing, wonderful harmonies and cool song selection. The first set starts off with a perfect 1/2 Step> ALON which was a nice change, they always played that song well. There is a interesting slide solo from Bob. How he got that sound I don't know. High Time is real sweet and a highlight, the rest of the set is very upbeat Push is another gem. A beautiful Crazy Fingers opens set II into one of the best UJB, it is a shorter version but Jerry's solos to the bridge is amazing. It is vibrant and fluid and makes this one quite noteworthy and a joy to listen to. A long Playing is also quite enjoyable. The big surprise was that post drums was broadcasted on TV for Farm Aid III and you get a rare post drums, and quite appropiate, Maggie's Farm that is very cool. The rest of the set is strong and you get a heartfelt Black Muddy River for an encore.Great sounding board with Phil being crystal clear.

The 18th Gets The Ink
Due to the strength of the setlist, but I think this night was almost as good. By 1987 a lot of Dead Heads seemed to dislike Black Peter and Around because they were downers -- Peter, because it was slow, and Around, because it was repetitive and boring.
This is a sweet recording and an admirable performance. 5 stars owing to the quality of the sound.
According to Deadbase Miracle>Maggie's Farm>Black Peter were part of the TV broadcast for Farm Aid III. I do remember watching it, but my playback system for television wasn't squat then, so the sound wasn't anywhere nearly as powerful as this.
